Friday Finds


Friday Finds is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, where we show off books we recently added to our TBR list or books we recently purchased, borrowed, etc.

I got approved for several eARCs through NetGalley this week so I thought I would share those. I am really excited to read these!

1.  If I Fall, If I Die by Michael Christie - a story about a boy who has never been outside and has never known anyone except his mother, who is agoraphobic.



2. Seeker by Elys Dayton - a new dystopian novel that has been compared to Hunger Games




3. The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma - This one is being described as a ghostly suspense story told from the POV of two people, one living and one dead.




4. The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George - Not going to lie, I requested this one based solely on the title. It is set in one of my favorite cities and it is about a bookshop! But it also has an interesting premise: the owner of a bookstore uses his intuition to prescribe the perfect book for each of his customers. I can't wait to read this one!



Have you found any new books this week?

  2. This week I read Enslaved by the Others by Jess Haines, and Ensnared by A.G. Howard. I'm currently debating what I should read next, but the mailman just showed up with a copy of Chloe Neill's Dark Debt, so I think my decision has been made. :D

  4. Oh the Little Paris Bookshop sounds great - your first choice sounds a little sad but maybe I'm biased because I've just read something similar... Here are my FFs https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/01/16/friday-finds-january-16/

    1. Cleo, I am reading If I Fall, If I Die now and it is kind of sad. What book did you read that was similar. A readers curiosity . . . :)

    2. I see you've been and found out - a similar sounding concept to Alice and The Fly!

  5. Seems like you got a great haul from NetGalley and they all sound interesting. I saw The Little Paris Bookshop there but didn't request. Although have to agree wit you,anything with bookshop in the title is a lure for readers.

  8. I am reading Seeker currently.(The comparison they've been giving isn't at all accurate either- it isn't really dystopian, and it definitely isn't a thing like THG!) It isn't going great. I don't have a clue what is happening, but I do hope it works better for you! I also must start reading The Walls Around Us VERY soon. It sounds so good! Hope you enjoy these :)

  9. I'm pretty interested in The Walls Around Us and I was so so as well for Seeker but the ratings and reviews on Goodreads are pretty bad. And it's a long book so I won't take a chance. :P Great picks though! Aren't 2015 books just EXCITING??
